Dental Implants Reston, VA

Dental Implants An Overview

Dental implants provide long-term stability and support the function of the bite. A more natural way to replace missing teeth, dental implants help patients improve their oral health while enhancing the appearance of their smile.

Reston, VA general dentist Dr. Datta Malyavantham is a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) and has years of experience and advanced training in the placement of all types of dental implants.

Dental implants mimic the natural ingenuity of a human tooth. Made of three main components the dental implant follows the form and function of teeth providing the patient with a nearly full functioning bite.

Dental tooth Implant modelDental Crown: Dental implants can be used to secure a dental crown for a single missing tooth. Multiple implants can be placed to secure a dental bridge or denture. The dental restoration will be custom designed to a patient’s unique specifications with the goal of looking like a natural tooth.

Abutment: The small metal abutment is attached to the dental implant once the implant has fully healed. The abutment protrudes from the gum line and provides as an anchor for the dental restoration. The dental crown will lock into the abutment for a stable restoration.

Dental Implant Post: Made from biocompatible titanium, Dr. Datta surgically implants the post into the jaw bone. For single dental implants, the post replaces the missing tooth root. In other dental implant procedures such as All-On-Four, dental implants are strategically placed to optimize bone healthy bone tissue.

The dental implant post is designed to integrate with the jaw bone. As the implant fuses to the jaw, it creates a stable hold that decreases the risk of future bone deterioration characteristic in patients with missing teeth.
